Repost: How The Mayans Used Chocolate

Wealthy Mayans drank their chocolate from elaborate cups designed and decorated by artists. The paintings on these cups tell a lot about the uses of chocolate in Mayan life. Chocolate was used in various ceremonies, including religious ceremonies. Chocolate was even drunk as part of betrothal and marriage ceremonies.

Directions
Heat 1/2 cup cream in a heavy non-reactive saucepot over moderate heat until cream comes to a low boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add chocolate. Let the chocolate stand in hot cream 3 to 5 minutes to soften, then whisk chocolate together with the cream. Stir in liqueur and/or chopped nuts and transfer the fondue to a fondue pot or set the mixing bowl on a rack above a small lit candle. If fondue becomes too thick, stir in reserved cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, to desired consistency. Arrange your favorite dippables in piles on a platter along side chocolate fondue with fondue forks, bamboo skewers or seafood forks, as utensils, for dipping.
